This site on BF Skinner provided alot of information that was easily acessable.
The site had a wide variety of information ranging from his personal documents
to his publications. It was very effective in giving detail about Skinner's
contribution and was very well organized.

I feel that the more you know about a scientist the more you will understand the
subject he/she studied. This is a ggod web-site that provides information not
readily found in text-books about B.F. Skinner. The site was easy to navigate
and provided many options to choose.

I needed no assistance and developed no problems while surfing this site.

This website pertains to Burrhus Frederic Skinner (B.F. Skinner). It provides
various informative links to information about B.F. Skinner, about his many
publications and works, the "Analysis of Behavior Program," several images and
recordings and some information about the B.F. Skinner Foundation.

Technical Remarks:

I found this website to be quite easy to navigate and I had no problems
accessing any of the information that it has to offer. I spent approximately an
hour thoroughly exploring the many offerings of this website.
